From 100mm length to 680mm. At that point wouldn't it be a new missile altogether. I am pretty sure the design is based on LAHAT.SAMHO too uses the same missile+pusher configuration.
You could clearly see the pusher falling off after firing.
Regarding length, Invar-M is 680mm compared to 1000mm of SAMHO. Now rather then length, it would be the mass of 125mm SAMHO which would be more of a concern. Increasing the diameter by keeping the length intact would mean increase in mass which right now is 1.3kg more then Invar. So the most logical step would be to bring down the length.
